What is Ayurveda?

What are the nutritional recommendations, this ancient Indian doctrine?  


Ayurveda (Ayus = life, veda = complete knowledge = ayurveda science of life) is based on three collections of letters (Samhitas): Caraka Samhita, Sushrutu Samhita and Ashtanga Hridaya Samhita. These are eight separate areas described: internal medicine, toxicology, surgery, ophthalmology, paediatrics, ear, nose and throat medicine, gynecology and obstetrics.  
The first papers are to be found in the Vedas around 5000 BC have been influenced by Ayurveda, the ancient Greek medicine (Hippocrates), the ancient Egyptian medicine and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Even today, approximately 80% of the population of India, ayurvedic treatment methods.  
A modern version of Ayurveda was developed in cooperation of western medical doctors with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi (the founder of Transcendental Meditation). Those in the West almost exclusively applied recast is called Maharishi Ayurveda.  
Ayurveda considers the human as a unity of body, mind, behavior and environment. The goal is a healthy life in which the needs for spiritual advancement and success in daily life alike can be satisfied. Health means that the body functions (metabolism, digestion, tissues and excreta) in equilibrium and soul, senses and spirit in the permanent state of inner happiness there.  

The Three Doshas  

A key role of the doctrine of the three doshas (Vata, Pitta, Kapha), because they allow the dialogue of the mind with the body. Each dosha is thus in all cells, tissues and organs of the body effectively and also has a spiritual function. They explain the relationship of man with his diet and the whole environment and thus show how the human nature in the laws of the universe is embedded. Everyone “includes” from birth to all three doshas, but in varying degrees. The doshas are in a dynamic equilibrium with each other, are mutually interdependent.  
The knowledge of the (own) Konstitutionstyp (pakriti) is essential for the self-understanding, it allows the trained but also from the resulting strengths and weaknesses, appropriate preventive and treatment methods to find out.


     light weight and easier to build, enthusiastic, lively, inventive, things go quickly, a tendency to dry skin, aversion to cold and windy weather, irregular hunger and digestion, is prone to constipation, understands, but forgets quickly, tends to concern and light interrupted sleep  


     medium build, medium strength and endurance, and working systematically organized, aversion to heat, strong hunger, thirst and good digestion, food can be bad, blonde or light red hair, light or reddish skin (freckles), precise, clear language, enterprising and brave, is prone to impatience and anger

The optimal balance between the individual doshas, according to this doctrine the pakriti (assessment) for the birth time prevail. Due to influences of everyday life as well as nutrition, exercise, sleep habits and feelings there are deviations from the natural (vikriti). Naturally return to their equilibrium following people to its initial value (pakriti) back. If that does not work more (massive stimuli, blocked counter-regulation), so it is first necessary to disturbance and in the further course of disease symptoms. Objective of Ayurveda is already before the outbreak of a disease remedy. In four main areas of tried-Maharishi Ayurveda the balance of the doshas, according to the pakriti:  
      Body Exercises

  12. Ayurevda Pitta is one of the main doshas of traditional Indian medicine. It is best to understand the features and qualities of people that are falling into this category. If you are not a Kapha or a Vata type, you surely are a Pitta. Ayurveda Pitta is basically characterized by two main elements, namely water and fire. Pitta is the most revered among all three Ayurvedic texts. In general, Pitta dosha has several basic characteristics.

    The dosha of Pitta is usually hot and subtly oily. People under this category are usually sharp, burning, acidic, liquid, pungent, and sharp. They are observed to be commonly flowing in unbounded manner. Why these characteristics? This is because Ayurveda Pitta mainly constitutes of fire, in combination with a little water. Thus, to best describe such people, they could always startup and fuel flame, though they could not be the flame itself. Such people could be compared to gasoline. The liquid is not hot when touched, but it could surely be an outstanding and effective source of flames. It may appear like any ordinary liquid, but there is something with gasoline that makes it distinct and different from just about any liquid material.

    People who are identified to take dominant Ayurveda Pitta constitution are typically having moderate level of physical activities and moderate size of body. They could not be as bulky as the Kaphas. Pittas are generally ambitious and very strong willed. In the process, these people could also be logically and apparently irritable, short-tempered, and highly aggressive especially under great physical stress. Pittas are believed and observed to me highly prone to different skin problems like skin irritations an sunburn. They are particularly prone to discomforts brought about by the heat and the sun particularly during summer.

  14. It is important that one’s diet is altered when doing the Ayurvedic diet for it to affect a person positively. Normally, the reason for this is that we all have different bodies. The amount of food that our body needs to work is differs among individuals . Some people don’t have problem with their cholesterol but they have to keep their blood sugar regularly in check. An Ayurvedic cleansing exercise will have to necessitate that you modify your diet to make it work. Your diet will have to be suitable enough that to come up with an inner fire called Agni . Your inner fire is located in your digestive system and your diet will help regulate it . There are three doshas or imbalances that are found in our body. These are the Vata, Pitta and Kapha .

    One concept of Ayurveda is that hot water should be consumed during the day time. The reason behind this is that hot water helps flush the toxins out of our body . Our urine contains lots of toxins that our body needs to get rid of . To increase the detoxifying efficiency, spices must be use with the same ratio as warm water . The spices cumin, coriander and fennel are all combined together to make a detoxifying tea . If you make your detoxifying tea just right you will be able to flush out all the toxins abundant in your system. To increase the potency of your detoxifying tea, you may use herbal teas adjunct to it .

  16. Ayurveda is the Vedic system of health care developed in India over 5000 years ago. This ancient ‘science of life’ is health and not disease specific and takes into account the patient’s entire being - body, mind soul and spirit.

    Though it originated thousands of years ago, Ayurveda could be more appropriate for present-day society, where so many people suffer from stress-related conditions which conventional medicine has been unable to cure. Ayurveda’s logical, commonsense approach to health and living is combined with philosophy, psychology and spiritual guidance.

    Ayurveda has an armory of physical treatments from medication to massage, yoga, cleansing and detoxification programs, and remedies for disorders such as diabetes, high BP, infertility, impotence, arthritis, hypertension, gastro-intestinal problems, and a whole barrage of chronic illness and infectious diseases. It offers natural, herbal remedies, which counteract imbalances in the body and can successfully treat most health problems encountered today.

    Ayurveda teaches that if humans do not live their lives according to the right principles of the body and mind, there will be an imbalance and both the body and mind causing suffering and disease.

  17. Ayurveda the ancient science of life is one of the most holistic and natural healing system for health and longevity. Born in the Indian subcontinent, this form of alternate medicine was practiced and developed during the Buddhism period. Today, this age old wisdom is used all over the world to cure various chronic as well as lifestyle ailments.

    Ayurveda is believed to be the oldest healing science in existence, from which all other systems emerged. It deals elaborately with measures for healthful living during the entire span of life and its various phases. Besides, dealing with principles for maintenance of health, it has also developed a wide range of therapeutic measures to combat illness. These principles of positive health and therapeutic measures relate to physical, mental, social and spiritual welfare of human beings.

  18. Ayurveda, which literally translated means the science or knowledge of life, is the traditional medical system. The Herbal Vedic product line is based on Ayurveda, the herbal healing tradition. Created using selected Ayurvedic herbs, Herbal Vedic products are carefully combined according to ancient fundamental principles. For this reason, Ayurveda is often referred to as the Mother of all healing.

    All Herbal Vedic products have been carefully created to highlight the wide ranging benefits of selected herbs and to balance all three constitutional types.

    Ayurvedic Skin Care is based on the premise that disease is the natural end result of living out of harmony with our environment. Natural is an important word because Ayurveda understands that symptoms of disease are the body normal way of communicating disharmony.

    Ayurveda understands each person and the disease the person is manifesting as a unique entity. It could be said that no two people are alike, and no two diseases are alike. Therefore, Ayurveda does not approach the cure of a disease as much as it approaches the cure of a person. Ayurveda, the science of life, has brought with it true wellness and health to millions of individuals irrespective of all ages, by incorporating simple proven methods in their lifestyles.
